Heroes of the Fourth Turning : Playwrights Horizons
Will Arbery’s (“Plano”) new drama offers an exploration of a country at war with itself, through its story of four young conservatives who have gathered at an after-party in rural Wyoming.
From the show:
It’s nearing midnight in Wyoming, where four young conservatives have gathered at a backyard after-party. They’ve returned home to toast their mentor Gina, newly inducted as president of a tiny Catholic college. But as their reunion spirals into spiritual chaos and clashing generational politics, it becomes less a celebration than a vicious fight to be understood. On a chilly night in the middle of America, Will Arbery’s haunting play offers grace and disarming clarity, speaking to the heart of a country at war with itself.Ends Nov 10| Playwrights Horizons / Mainstage Theatre (Midtown W)
